I was recently checking my timeline on Twitter a few days ago when I stumbled upon a discussion by Mr Mobility about Etisalat and Airtel offering unlimited data plans for their Blackberry devices.
You see I am a very heavy data consumer and i burn through data plans that is initialy meant for a month in weeks, even days atimes.
Then I continued to follow the discussion and I found out that there may be a possibility that tethering to devices like laptops do not attract any extra charges and i started getting interested.
I am an avid Android user and I really like the whole concept and implementation of the operating system as a whole and the thought of me using a Blackberry would repulse me on a normal day.
See, I do not hate the Blackberry OS. In fact I have really admired how they have gotten this far considering that they evolved from making pagers back in the day. Another feat that makes me respect Blackberry is the social network integration and how they are able to provide enterprise like security on a mobile phone.
All the feats aside, I at one stage in my life had declared that I wouldn’t want to be caught dead with a Blackberry because it just wasn’t made for me.
But I think that I’m going to have to swallow the Blackberry pill because that is looking like the best alternative to having unlimited data and blazing fast network combined in a cheap package that is both economical and value for the money (If the service works).
Lastly anyone knows how much a Blackberry 8520 costs?
